Educational Resources: Python Recipes, NYS GIS Presentations and More

How about a Python GDAL/OGR Cookbook? @PerryGeo says "Wish I'd had this 10 years ago!" I suspect he's not the only one. It's a GitHub project.

Videos and slides from the NYGeoCon Conference Nov 11-13 are online. Organizers request that "If you like what you see and you're not yet a member of the NYS GIS Association, please JOIN. It's only $10."

GovLoop offers a new guide to Open Source (pdf or a magazine tool).

Through GovLoop’s research initiatives to define the “agency of the future,” we have consistently found one important trend in government: open-source technology. Open source holds great potential to reimagine business processes and how services are delivered in the public sector. Government agencies have used open-source solutions in a variety of ways, including powering websites and running internal communications platforms. We’ve seen how agencies can tailor open-source solutions to fit organizational needs.

I didn't see anything on open-source GIS. The project was funded by Red Hat. I'd have liked to see that more prominently noted.
